Bloomington, IN (Vocus) September 22, 2010
Solution Tree, a leading educational professional development company, has released Mind, Brain, & Education, a new book that explores neuroscience’s implications for improving teaching and education.
Mind, Brain, & Education is a landmark publication in the emerging field of educational neuroscience. The book showcases insights into the learning process and explores its implications for educational theory and practice. With an introduction and chapter by David A. Sousa, one of the primary researchers in the field, and chapters by 16 leading experts, Mind, Brain, & Education provides a comprehensive overview of the history and current research being conducted in this emerging field.
The researchers who contribute to the volume use the growing knowledge of how the brain functions and develops to explore the field’s implications for pedagogy and the classroom.
“It’s an excellent, timely, informative book on the history and current status of the field that has come to be known as educational neuroscience,” said Robert Sylwester, emeritus professor of education at the University of Oregon. “The 10 chapters that constitute the heart of the book were written by a wonderful mix of outstanding researchers and educators, from Michael I. Posner, a renowned pioneer in the use of neuroimaging technology in psychology/education and the recipient of the 2009 National Medal of Science, to Judy Willis, who left a career as a neurologist to become an elementary/middle school teacher.”
Mind, Brain, & Education is the sixth book in the Leading Edge™ series. The Leading Edge™ series unites education authorities from around the globe and asks them to confront the important issues that affect teachers and administrators—the issues that profoundly impact student success.
“This book will change how we approach teaching and learning,” said Jeffrey C. Jones, president and CEO of Solution Tree. “With a foundational understanding of the science behind the learning process, we can alter our methods to improve both teaching and learning.”
